Have you ever wondered how to wash sofa covers? Here we present all the instructions in one place. Also, check out our tips for cleaning tough stains! Washing has never been easier! All of our covers are machine washable!
Cotton couch covers – washing instructions
Let’s start with the most popular fabric – cotton. It’s required to follow the manufacturer’s tag. It’s a full natural fabric, recommended for families with children.
Use your washing machine to wash your sofa cover without bleach at a temperature of 40°C or less. Never wring out the cover, even if it is quite wet.
Don’t forget to let it drip dry in the shade. I am aware that simply putting it in the dryer could be more practical however, the fabric may lose its shape and color. You can iron your cotton cover if you require a flawless finish at max. temp. 150°C or 300°F.
Polyester couch covers – washing instructions
When taking your cover off, please remember about your couch cushions – they need your attention too. The easiest way is to wash your covers in the washing machine.
Use your washing machine and avoid using bleach while washing your sofa cover at a temperature of 40°C or less. Don’t wring the cover.
Please note that you need to drip dry it in the shade. Although it might be easier to merely put in the dryer, the fabric is not appropriate for that. You can iron your cover to its maximum smoothness at 230°F or 110°C.
Velvet couch covers – washing instructions
It’s recommended to use a delicate cycle. Velvet is one of the easiest fabrics to clean. Throw your cover into the washing machine, set the temperature maximum at 40 degrees, and turn it on!
Remember: do not use bleach as it may damage the material. Do not wring your wet cover. Also, note that it’s important to drip dry your cover in the shade in lieu of using a tumble dryer. When it’s clean and dry – it’s ready to be back on your sofa!
Please also remember to not iron the fabric with classic, ordinary iron. Use the steamer instead, but be very careful. Turn your device on low heat and do not touch the cover. Take some time and patience. Now I believe you know everything about cleaning the velvet cover!
Tip for cleaning your couch covers
It’s best to clean it with… a hair spray! Can you believe that? Just cover the smudge with a layer of the hair product and wait until the alcohol sucks the stain away! (Please note that it needs to contain alcohol.) Of course, the next thing to do is to wash your cover in the washing machine.
How to get rid of those? Apply some shaving foam onto the stain and leave it for about 10 minutes. It works like magic, even on red wine spills! Then, use a very soft brush and start gently brushing the upholstery (one way only). After the spot treatment, wash your upholstery in a washing machine.
Mix some baking soda with cold water and cover the spill with the blend. Leave it overnight. On the next day, vacuum your cushion covers and you are good to go!
